If you're looking for a casual lunch, breakfast, or snack, seek out Thyme in the Ranch, 16905 Av. de Acacias (tel. 858/759-0747; www.thymeintheranch.com), a bakery/cafe that's open Tuesday through Saturday from 7am to 3pm. Hidden on a small plaza behind chic Mille Fleurs, this tiny treasure is well known (as evidenced by constant lines at the counter). Salads, sandwiches, soup, and quiche are the menu mainstays -- all delicious -- but the baked treats are extra-special.
